One really needs to drive especially to visit this place, therefore one must be an amateur of cheese. The cave visit was ok. The guide lady was very kind and charming and only in French. For other language, she will give you some explanation in paper. We didn't really see any real cheese, neither the process of production since it... More

We really enjoyed this tour. It was entirely in French so we were give handouts to read at various points which I think covered the main points. It is a brilliant little tour which lasts about an hour and includes a tasting session at the end! It is a bargain too at 5 Euro per person. The caves are cold,... More

Interesting enough, but a little tricky with the English translations handout, trying to figure out what exact part they are on, so felt a little left out. But don't let that put you off, the caves itself were fantastic and I loved seeing how they went through the processes. The tasting at the end were yum! Remember to wear warmer... More

We have visited many cheese making facilities in Switzerland but to see the origin of the famous roquefort was an excursion worth. With the tasting after the visit the cave experience where the famous cheese is born is rounded up It can ideally be combined with other attractions in the neighbourhood

An excellent place to visit to learn, and taste, Roquefort in the place where it is created. The tour was a bit uninformative and with many steps so not a place to go if you have knee or hip problems! The best part was the degustation at the end and the boards of old adverts and history on display.

First of all let me explain that there are several Roquefort cheese caves that can be visited in Roquefort-sur-Soulzon and it can be tricky to find the Roquefort Société Cave! Plenty of signs offering free visits attempt to divert you from the Roquefort Société Cave, but I would definitely say that the 5 Euros charged are well worth it! Second,... More

Really enjoyed our visit to the Roquefort caves - my French wasn't really up to following the tour guide fully but my other half is more fluent and was able to translate the salient points. The moving model of the land on which Roquefort sits and the inevitable 'sons et lumiere' that the French love were a bit pointless but... More

Tour Society Roquefort was just average. Too long and English handout didn't match tour. Tasting was excellent, though!
